I’ve asked the city of Asheville for information about the movie crew requesting permits for closing down streets, and am waiting to hear back. I’ve also asked if the movie production has been permitted for the use of any other city-owned property.
Over the past couple of weeks, the movie crew has been filming in Swannanoa, Franklin and Old Fort.
Meantime in Asheville, sightings of the celebrities tied to the movie have become a commonplace occurrence. Owen Wilson has been the most visible – he was reportedly hanging at The Wedge on Wednesday evening. Kristen Wiig has been seen shopping and buying local art. And Zach Galifianakis apparently likes barbecue – he’s been spotted at Luella’s and 12 Bones.
